the secretary of state that he wants and with john kerry mentioned the senator from massachusetts as the alternative to susan rice, would he be any better. >> i'm surprised that the president is pushing so hard from here. quite apart from whether she was politicizing events she shouldn't have been, she has a reputation of not being a very good diplomate n that job you have to be able to persuade people to come on your side and apparently she tends to. >> rough edges. >> insult people and she's a little bit abrasive, but, john kerry is also very troubling. his track record over the years, not as a diplomate. he might be very good at going to dinners and so forth, but, you know, for example, in latin america, when he ran for president, he was backed by thomas boardhey a former in nicaragua and, another's involvement in the office in honduras were bringing a friend of chavez back to honduras and that's cost a lot of-- >> and the case for susan rice, she's better than john kerry.

of the spectacle of going back and forth were all the republicans that came out and were endorsing john kerry. the senator from massachusetts who is known to actually want the job. >> viqueira from the white house on this saturday, thanks. >> okay. >>> the controversy over susan rice and her possible nomination as secretary of state continues to grow. many republicans, as you just heard there staunchly opposed ambassador rice. the opposition stems from comments she made on sunday talk shows after the september attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and now there are new questions about a possible conflict of interest. let's bring in congressman gregory meeks, democrat from new york. also a member of the house foreign affairs committee. thanks for swinging by on this saturday afternoon, congressman. >> good being with you, craig. >> first of all, is ambassador rice, is she the candidate that you would like to see put forth? >> ambassador vice a brilliant woman. i've known her for a while. she is from the clinton administration. i've senn her work. she is a rhodes scholar. she has done exce

john kerry -- gwen: well, if you're a member of the senate you're part of the club and that's probably what's going on. but i'm curious about the folks at the white house, mike, it seems to me the people at the white house are trying to decide if it's worth it. >> i don't often say this, because every time i think it i end up being wrong. but i think there's a visceral aspect of this. i think the president, when this came up in his first post-election press conference was genuinely upset. come after me, come after me, almost like a joe pesci moment there. gwen: right, right. and if it would have been anybody other than john mccain it wouldn't have been quite the same. >> which also may have pushed the presidential buttons as well. i think that there is a strong contingent among the upper echelon at the state department and at the white house that think that president should go forward with that nomination. gwen: should? >> should. i think there are others who say let's not pick this fight now. we have plenty to work on you the upcoming fiscal cliff and immigration. i think when susan c

. he's a republican. also, john kerry, currently in the senate. michelle flournoy. hagel would be an interesting pick. if he picks hagel, a republican, that takes some of the heat off of susan rice to be nominated as secretary of state. she's had a tough time on capitol hill talking to republicans. if you get a package deal, a republican and a democrat, that you're nominating from the president. what are senators going to do, but take both of them? we're hearing, if the president wants susan rice, he's going to nominate susan rice, one way or the another. >> neither side seems to be moving on what they need to do to avoid a fiscal cliff and reach an agreement. is there posturing? >> reporter: well, this is washington. the whole fiscal cliff is forcing them to do something. the president has said that tax rates will go up for the wealthy. republicans won't bend on that yesterday, john boehner said, we are at a stalemate. this is posturing. this is washington. we're going to have ups and downs. >> ups and downs in the stock market, as well. david, thanks. have a great weekend. >>

it could be john kerry. also secretary of defense they say they are trying to name here in the next couple of weeks. the question is regarding susan rice. some have brought up in the past couple of days that maybe benghazi isn't the only blemish on her record. maybe what happened on september 11st, actually reflects something that happened earlier on in her career. going back to 1998 when there were those terror bombings in kenya, and tanzania that killed more than 200 people. a dozen americans. some say susan rice failed to protect our embassies similar to what happened in 1998. >> exact same story repeated. they had the warnings. they had information that al qaeda had cells in these cities and they didn't do anything about it as far as increasing the security on these buildings and, once again, the same situation as what we saw back on september 11th. >> this came on the heels of the coal bombings. the family member was on hannity speaking about this going back to 1998. take a listen. >> what we do now is that as early as 1996, our intelligence community had live active cells al qaeda ce

is interesting. chuck hagel, a former senator. he's on the right on your screen. he's a republican. also, john kerry, currently in the senate. michelle flournoy, who is in the defense department right now. and ashton carter, right now in the defense department right now. hagel would be an interesting pick. if he picks hagel, a republican, that takes some of the heat off of susan rice to be nominated as secretary of state. she's had a tough time on capitol hill talking to republicans. so, if you get a package deal, a republican and a democrat, that you're nominating from the president. what are republican senators going to do, but take both of them? we're hearing, if the president wants susan rice, he's going to nominate susan rice, one way or the another. >> using political capital at that. david, neither side seems to be moving on what they need to do to avoid a fiscal cliff and reach an agreement. republicans say no tax rate increases. democrats aren't giving in on entitlement reforms. is this just posturing? or are we in real trouble here? >> reporter: well, this is washington. the whole fi

of here. if this thing does play out like some does suspect and john kerry ends up getting nominated to run the pentagon, that makes for a very interesting senate race in the state of massachusetts, once again. >> maybe, maybe not. what people keep forgetting in all of this is that the massachusetts legislature is run by democrats who could always just change the law back so that there's not a special election and it becomes an appointment, again. yes, some dominos falling in massachusetts if senator kerry gets that post, particularly if there is an election, which is the state of the law right now. scott brown expected to run for it and about as strong a republican as you can get in the state of massachusetts. >> molly ball, thank you so much. lynn sweet, one of my favorite ladies. lynn, i did not get to ask you about your jesse jackson, but i would encourage folks to read on what you wrote over gesjesse jackson jr. over the past week or so. some very insightful reporting. >>> 31 days out to the fiscal cliff. we will go live to see what the president is saying to house leaders and w

of state or nominate her, rather, but some bad week with senate republicans on the hill whereas john kerry the senator from massachusetts had a very good week and it looks like republicans would confirm him for just about anything that the president wanted to appoint him to. >> morris, your picks. >> we'll let him appoint him to secretary of defense. my worst week is benjamin netanyahu. this guy has a real problem on his hand. you know, the u.n. situation, west bank expansion, picking the wrong guy for president. netanyahu, you've got a problem and you have to figure it out quickly. the best week for me is what i'm calling obama 2.0. the president is out there and this is new obama and gauge taking his message to the american people and strong leadership and expect more of this, more of an activist president in the next four years. >> okay. susan, how about yours? >> i think ambassador susan rice had a horrible week. not only, it started out with the best intentions going up to meet with these senators, but especially after a meeting with senator collins from maine, it just really went dow

. >> john kerry has been very active in this issue. i think it will require a presidential push to convince a few. i think it's important that we move forward with that. just one additional thing. as i mentioned, and as we know, the world is so rapidly changing. the unpredictability of the world is the one thing but i think we would all agree on. look at the world, as i mentioned last night, the first time we convened here and look at it today. what will it be like four years from now darks we don't know. we have no real idea. anyone who predicted the world four years ago would like -- would be like this today, i would like to meet year. -- i would like to meet yuo. we need common principles of international behavior. we have to stick to those principles. all of us, at least during the cold war, we lived in a very predictable world. we did. we knew the divisions and capabilities. we do not know what's going to happen. i don't know what will happen in china. i tell believe that 1.3 billion people are going to be satisfied forever under the present regime in which they live. it seems to me it
